Baby Boomers - Heads Up for Golfers!

Baby boomers, do you love to golf, but can't afford to hit the links everyday? Maybe the weather isn't co-operating .... how about mini putt on the internet?

Way back in 1926, the first mini-golf courses were built on rooftops in NYC. Today, we can mini putt on the internet. Step aside Tiger Woods!

Just click on the picture and "putt" the hours away ... oh my! BTW ... even if you're not a golfer, you won't be able to stop ... it's addictive!

Have FUN, tell all your baby boomer friends about this baby boomers blog and be sure to comment on how you did.

Watch Out for #18 it's a killer ... !

Baby Boomers - Plan Ahead ... Oh MY!

From The London Times:

A Well-Planned Retirement

Outside England's Bristol Zoo there is a parking lot for 150 cars and 8 buses. For 25 years, its parking fees were managed by a very pleasant attendant. The fees were £1 for cars ($1.40), £5 for buses (about $7).

Then, one day, after 25 solid years of never missing a day of work, he just didn't show up; so the Zoo Management called the City Council and asked it to send them another parking agent. The Council did some research and replied that the parking lot was the Zoo's own responsibility. The Zoo advised the Council that the attendant was a City employee. The City Council responded that the lot attendant had never been on the City payroll.

Meanwhile, sitting in his villa somewhere on the coast of Spain (or some such scenario), is a man who'd apparently had a ticket machine installed completely on his own; and then had simply begun to show up every day, commencing to collect and keep the parking fees, estimated at about $560 per day -- for 25 years.

Assuming 7 days a week, this amounts to just over $7 million dollars!

And no one even knows his name ... Oh MY!!!

Baby Boomers listen up, this is quite the entrepreneur! Plan your retirement wisely ...
